Housing report: the bedroom-blockers are getting on – so should they be getting out? - Telegraph Over 60s 'should be exempt from stamp duty' to free up under-occupied homes | Mail Online So, the "Intergenerational Foundation", backed by none other than Tessa Jowell of the Labour party, wants older people to move out of their family homes to free them up for younger people. Ah, well. They've already targeted every other person who has contributed to the country so I suppose it was about time to switch to the elderly. I shall, forthwith, move out of my 3 bed semi and move into a little one bedroom flat. Then, when my kids and the grandkids want to come and stay I can honestly tell them to naff as we don't have the room. I shall also force my parents into a similar property so that it would be impossible for me to go and visit with them as well. Now, I wonder when Tessa Jowell, John Prescott, Peter Mandelson and many others without live-in children are going to do the same thing? And, if I am blocking up a couple of bedrooms, don't those wonderful MPs with more than one home block up even more? She has a large house in the country as well as one in London. How many bedrooms, Tessa? And, as you're separated from your husband, perhaps a one bed studio in an inner city area would be more in keeping with these views.
